On March 9th, 2016, the McGill School of Social Work welcomed nine high school students from the English Montreal School Board as part of their Career Exploration Program.
The students had the opportunity to visit the Wilson Hall building and attend the course Intro to Practicum (SWRK 222), given by Karen Hetherington and Shadi Martin.
Following the class, the high school students met with current BSW students, Shimmon Hutchinson and Carolanne Brazeau, who spoke about their experience as social work students and shared their personal insight on what a career in social work entails.
Finally, the students were given a campus tour and had the opportunity to learn about all the exciting programs and activities that McGill has to offer.
The visit was a great success and we look forward to welcoming more young aspiring social workers in the future!
